Saturday Sewing and Shopping

Well, there wasn't a lot of sewing on Saturday. Most of these pictures were from Friday night. I made some good progress on the back pack, but I think that I am at a stopping point until I go to the shop and see how the straps are attached because it's not very clear in the pattern.

This is the body of the bag before I attached the bottom border.

This is the body of the bag with the button holes made and the outside edges sewn together.

And this morning, I made the straps for the bag. Once I was done, I ran to get an oil change on the car and I stitched the binding on Lover's Lane while I waited. Then, I treated myself to IHOP. Yum!

After lunch, I went to the new Super Joann's in Mason. Since it's President's Day weekend, there was a sale, but there wasn't much to get. I did pick up a rotating cutting mat that will help with all of the HSTs that I like to make. And 2.5 yards of fabric for pants.

I also found a cheap dog sweater for Max. And since I found one for Max, I figured that I needed to go to the PetSmart to find one for Maisy. And I got them a few dogs toys, too.

My poor BFD - I should have gotten her a medium!

I think that they both like the sweaters because they wore them for more than 30 minutes.

Once I got home from shopping though, I had no energy or momentum to do anything. I ended up watching TV and stitching more of the binding on Lover's Lane. I am more than halfway done. Woo hoo!

The pups are so adorable. Daisy will wear her sweater all day if I'd let her. LOL

I love my little turning mat. Love the discounted notion times here too. we don't have a Joann's, but a Hancocks.
